Thank you for your interest in submitting an idea for programming content at GeekGirlCon 2017!
Please read the following important information thoroughly before submitting any of the programming submission forms. Also check our Programming FAQ for more information about programming submissions and acceptance. Join the GeekGirlCon Contributor Forum on Facebook to connect with others as you plan your programming content.
We will accept submissions to all forms until Sunday, April 30 at 11:59pm PST. We will not accept late submissions under any circumstances whatsoever.
There are several programming submission forms:
- Panel Submission: To submit your own panel or presentation for consideration.
- Panelist and/or Moderator Application: To be considered as a panelist or moderator on any panels needing additional participants.
- Performance/Event Submission: To submit an idea for an event or performance (musical performance, variety show, networking event, game show, etc.).
- Workshop Submission: To submit interactive/educational content (Paint ‘n Take, hands-on wig styling tutorial, learn-to-code hour, etc.).
- Tabletop Game Host Application: To submit a game you/your company created for consideration for the Gaming Floor.
Please note that we are changing the way that our Signing Table operates this year. If you are an author who would like to sign/sell your books at the convention, please apply for an exhibitor space. To do so, please complete the Exhibitor Contract and Application form.
**Please be aware that panelists will not be guaranteed exhibition/tabling space in the Exhibitor’s Hall. If you would like to have table space, you will need to fill out the Exhibitor Contract and Application.
When formulating and submitting your programming idea, please be aware of the following:
- Mission-Alignment: Read over our Mission & Values and ensure that your submission is in line with them.
- Timeliness/Buzzworthiness: Submissions that are relevant to recent events and hot topics, or which discuss important issues in interesting new ways, will generally be at an advantage.
- Completeness: We will prioritize submissions that are complete and do not require development by our staff over those that are not complete.
- Relevance: Keep the GeekGirlCon audience in mind when formulating your submission—what will GeekGirlCon attendees want to see? Refer to the Mission & Values if you’re not certain.
- Your Time/Bandwidth: Please be sure that you have the time and energy to follow through with your submission once you hit “submit.” While we understand that life can get in the way, we rely on our convention participants to make GeekGirlCon a priority and put their best effort into providing great programming for our attendees.
Thank you for reading all of this important information. Now, it’s time for you to submit your proposal(s) – we’re very excited to hear what you have to offer!
